Changing Account ownership

Accounts & Contacts

When changing an account owner to another user, there's is no option "not" to transfer contacts and opportunities owned by the original owner. Most of the time, we "ONLY" want to change the account owner and don't want to change the contact and opportunity owner. The way it's set up now, you don't have a choice, because when you change the account owner the system automatically changes the ownership of all contacts and opportunities owned by the original owner to the "new" owner of the account. Then I have to go back in and change the ownership of the contacts and opportunites back to the original owner. This is time consuming.
